Patriot’s Day 16 Apr 12

Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts is shaping up to be a warm one, much to the chagrin of Monday’s Boston Marathon participants. Geoffrey Mutai won last year’s event in a record 2:03:02 thanks to ideal conditions. The temperature for the 2012 edition is expected to reach into the 80s though — far from a desired setting for the 26.2-mile race. Caroline Kilel is the defending women’s champion for the world’s oldest annual marathon.
